Remarks & Notes 
This is the end

Some French railfans called it a "death train" (train de la mort). Both the locomotive and the passenger cars are running their last kilometers. The cars are going to a scrapper's yard in Le Havre. The engine will be withdrawn from service on arrival in Le Havre, and hauled back dead in tow to Sotteville for parts removal and further waiting sale to a scrapper.
This was also the last time one could see a CC 72100 in operation.
